Educational Benefits

Every year, all families with children enrolled in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 should complete an Application for Educational Benefits. Many families are eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals, as well as waived or reduced fees for transportation, athletics, activities and more! 

By completing an application, you are helping to ensure every school in District 191 gets the much-needed state and federal funding it deserves.

We encourage all One91 families to complete an application online or mail in a completed paper application to District 191 Food Service Office, 200 W. Burnsville Pkwy, Burnsville, MN, 55337.
